CHOQUEQUIRAO TREK 4 days / 3 nights
The archaeological place of shockquirao comes to be considered as the last Inca city and one of the most beautiful and complete routes of Cusco but with a degree of difficulty (difficult and strong from 1 to 5 has the degree of difficulty) Recommends doing so in 5 days.
In this tour we include an emergency horse or two depending on the number of people in the group
It is also considered as a non-tourist or commercial route, so the groups are small or private and the official departures of each month will be published or I could consult it on the web and also at the client’s choice if they want a private group.
